Grinstead Park is ideal for fitness, fun, food and friends
Back in the day, Stafford was a suburb that featured a large number of post-war Queensland Housing Commission homes on quarter-acre blocks. These days, a lot of blocks are subdivided, so the blocks may be getting smaller but the population in Stafford is growing. So it’s nice to know that in the midst of this busy north Brisbane hub that features a Bunnings, an industrial estate, a shopping centre, a tavern and lots of other well-frequented facilities, there’s an oasis of calm called Grinstead Park.
Though it’s located off busy Shand Street, it’s actually a wonderful and relatively peaceful place for families to visit and be absorbed by. There’s ample parking and you can also access it via the Kedron Brook Bikeway which will take you right into the park.
Hours of fun for the kids
When the kids go a little stir-crazy at home, take them down to Grinstead Park and their eyes will light up at the sight of the playground! It looks like a wonderland of forts, bridges, ramps, ladders, hidey-holes and pitched roofs, all sheltered under shade sails and featuring a bark base for comfort.
There’s even a little toddler playground with an oversized abacus and noughts and crosses game, plus a few little make-believe features such as a pretend shop.
Mothers’ groups meet here to let the kids run around while they chat and exchange stories. There’s an abundance of shade and the playground is coloured to blend in with the local environment. It’s also a wonderful place to go for group walks. With its flat surfaces, it’s perfect for Mums who want to congregate to do yoga or push their prams along while chatting.
If nature’s more your thing, you’ll be pleased to know that Grinstead Park is a habitat restoration site and the Brisbane City Council works hard to ensure the local wildlife is looked after. For example, the bush is kept fairly dense at the outskirts of the park so animals can make their homes and stay safe.
You’ll find a useful fitness circuit and rebound wall where you can work out for free. There are numerous stations and a board that provides instructions on how to use the equipment. Or, if you just want to kick a ball around, there’s plenty of room for that too. Do a bit of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and intersperse your circuit reps with a hard sprint. Teenagers will love the mini-skateboard ramp and full-sized basketball court.
Dine out in the park
Clean, electric barbecues are available for public use and the park is very popular in the area for birthday parties, so make sure you get there early if you have organised friends and family to congregate there.
A toilet block is available, as is off-street car parking, water and plenty of shade. Go down and explore Grinstead Park this weekend and you and the kids might be pleasantly surprised!
